Monday

Old world charm tea rooms, glitter and lace...



Tea-room

There's something appealing about old world charm tea rooms. Like the Hopetoun Tea Rooms at The Block Arcade in Melbourne. With its incredible array of delightful treats. A visual feast for the eyes and a calorie-laden one for the tummy...*LOL*



Lots of glitter under the lace..And can you tell that it's not one big piece of lace...but carefully pieced together pieces? 


The glitter, pearls and butterflies are supposed to help to distract...it is called "scrap"booking right? *winks*

Playing along with the challenges at Scrap Africa to use chipboard and the sketch at Scrap Around The World.


P/s: Come play along with my guest Shahrul's stitching challenge!
